Premiere: Alexis “ethereal skies” | DJMag.com
The London-based DIY collective and women’s culture label will release their new charity compilation, ‘HeForShe Vol.4’, in aid of UN Women this month. Listen to London DJ and producer Alexis “ethereal skies” in the line-up below.
Released on April 15, the album features tracks covering a range of club-oriented styles like Bambounou, Elkka, KAVARI, Bklava, Talik, Jennifer Loveless, Al Wootton, Ayesha, moktar, SUCHI and more. You can see the full list of tracks below.
Speaking about the compilation, Elkka of femme culture said: “It’s so good to be working on the label again, I’ve had a lot to do in the last 12 months and we haven’t been able to get out of compilation last year due to Covid and a million other things. I want to publicly thank each and every one of our amazing artists this year the talent levels are insane. So excited everyone is listening.
Speaking about his contribution to the compilation, Alexis said: “This track is a groovy and glitchy slow burner. I wanted to do something still danceable but also something to listen to at home or elsewhere! I really enjoyed creating this track because it was one of the first times I felt like I could be confident with my production and do something that I could have fun with.
All funds raised from ‘HeForShe Vol. 4’ will be donated to UN Women and split equally between their Safe Spaces Now program and their Ukrainian relief efforts, delivered to the ground for women and those at risk.
femme culture has also pledged to donate 10% of profits from future releases to a charitable cause chosen with each release artist. This new compilation marks the fifth year of the femme culture charity series to benefit UN Women. The first volume arrived in 2018.
